Just when Celia thinks the supernatural world can’t turn deadlier, a new rival emerges, proving just how dangerous a power-hungry were can be.
Since being cursed with unique abilities, Celia Wird and her three sisters have fought the most bloodthirsty preternaturals in the Lake Tahoe region. But Celia’s greatest threat is someone she would have never suspected: Anara, a werewolf Elder who has allowed his hatred for Celia to spiral out of control. In a play for dominance, Anara tortures Celia and gives her an ultimatum: sever her mate bond with pureblood were Aric—or Anara will kill everyone she loves.
From the instant they met, Celia and Aric have shared an attraction that cannot be tamed. So keeping Aric away is impossible, and Aric would sooner die than allow anyone to hurt the woman he loves. Misha, master vampire and Celia’s sworn protector, also finds his way into the chaos, seeking blood from those who have harmed her.
Now Celia and her sisters are caught in the middle of a war driven by lust, fueled by hatred, and destined to end in tragedy. For Anara is a force to be reckoned with, and he will not succumb without robbing Celia of those who hold her heart.
Celia and her sisters have always stood on the outskirts of the paranormal and human communities, part of both worlds but belonging to neither. They created a home for themselves, found love, but something evil was hunting them. They barely survived the last attack. Their relationships have crumbled and struck rock bottom. To save the ones they love, they must make unbearable choices. United, they were unstoppable, but nasty rumors and uncaring acts tore them apart. If they want to survive, they must overcome their distrust and work together or all will be lost.
I love the continued lore and paranormal elements in the Weird Girls series. This book was just heartbreaking! Some of the choices they were forced to make would destroy a normal person. The main characters took one hard blow after another, just when you think something will finally work out for them, their world came crashing down again. The book was action packed and riveting. I couldn’t put it down; I had to know what happened next. Like the last book, there were a few things that felt a little off. Aric’s absence in the first half of the book felt wrong. We saw snapshots, but he’s not the full alpha we’re used to seeing. Then we have Celia. Gosh, I adore her character, but she sure took some harsh knocks. I loved that she was vulnerable, but there were times that I wondered why she didn’t try to save herself sooner. Despite all that, I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I can’t wait to find out what journey these characters will tackle next!
